The sun has shone as Sir Nigel bowed out over the weekend, hauling the Gresley set of coaches. At the station we’ve been busy painting again, with the Camping Coach getting 2 top coats of cream gloss. The grey box van has had the white handles glossed, together with the white on the sector panel on the south end.
We have been working hard on our secret weapon, putting the parts together ready for Wartime Weekend. Further paint has been applied to this as well. The small steel parts for the NER hand cart, plus the big steel wheels have all been undercoated and top coated in NER green.
We also got the bar ready for next weekend’s Gala, as we will be selling Real Ale from the General Room on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We will be open from approximately 11 until 6ish, so do come and see us.
Weighbridge Teas had another excellent weekend with lots of visitors sampling their wares. We had more vegetables on the sales cart, including the bumper crop of green beans.
